Oldies sweeter than wine...

"Oldies But Goodies, Vol. 4 is a solid installment in this fifteen CD series of great hits from back in the day! These hits really made the airwaves sizzle and they remains great music today. The sound quality is really rather good; and the artwork is nicely done.

Creedence Clearwater Revival kicks off the CD with their fantastic tune entitled "Proud Mary." "Proud Mary" has a rock and roll beat that seems mixed with a touch a folk rock and maybe even a dash of country for good measure. Creedence Clearwater Revival sings and plays this tune so well that it makes an instantly recognizable tune and a highlight of this album. Buddy Holly sings "Peggy Sue;" this early rock and roll song showcases Buddy's fine voice and he aces this seemingly effortlessly. Of course, we know that it really isn't so easy--but Buddy's great talent allows him to make it appear easy. The Shirelles also do a magnificent job on "Soldier Boy;" "Soldier Boy" has a fine rhythm and the percussion marks the beat well. The Shirelles were one of the finest girl groups of the `60s and just one listen proves it.

The Turtles do a fine job on "It Ain't Me Babe;" this tune sounds a bit like something The Rolling Stones would have produced but make no mistake about it--The Turtles make it their own and it all holds its own very well. "Harper Valley P.T.A." by Jeannie C. Riley is a huge favorite of mine; Jeannie sings this with her heart and soul and I really like "Harper Valley P.T.A." Carl Perkins also sing and plays "Blue Suede Shoes" with a great early rock and roll beat that is impossible not to like--hooray for Carl Perkins!

The Big Bopper performs "Chantilly Lace" with lots of feelings; the music that goes with his lyrics really fits in well for this number. "Chantilly Lace" is a very pretty melody and the fast tempo makes it good for dancing, too. "Chantilly Lace" is definitely a highlight of this CD. In addition, The Rays do "Silhouettes" with a great deal of passion and sensitivity; The Rays sing this torch song with panache and I'm very impressed. B.J. Thomas also delivers "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" with lots of feeling and all his heart. "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" is a sweet melody even though the song is not about a happy situation. I always enjoy hearing B.J. Thomas singing "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry."

The Jive Five do "My True Story" very well; and they mix a light rock beat with doo wop to make this number special; and listen for "Come On Let's Go" by Richie Valens. The album also ends well with Sandy Nelson performing "Teen Beat."

Oldies But Goodies, Vol. 4 has a lot to like if you're a fan of the oldies; and this makes a great CD for people who enjoy early rock and roll, too.

"Poor quality. Does not seem to have any background music. I'm not sure why."

"I bought this to play a few songs from it for someone's 50th Bday party. Only a few songs on it are really good, but I had little choice in releases they were on so I bought this one."
